  • Check the tide times and head off on a mini adventure to Forrest Caves. Easy to access from the beach and really easy to explore when you get there - have fun!  more »
  • I went here the other day at low tide to see the "caves". It was kinda cool but not very big caves at all. It's a nice beach and fun to walk around all the rockpools.  more »
  • A really nice area to explore. It's not well sign posted so easy to miss the turn off from the main road. There's a lot of stairs and a decent walk down the beach to get there so not pram friendly. You can also expect to get wet to knee height around low tide to enter the caves. We went about 1.5 hours after low tide and still accessible. High tide was nice there as well, you can climb on top of the caves and watch the water splash up from the holes. A beautiful beach walk to get there.
  • Nice wide clean beach that's good to cool off on a warm day. Backed by large grassy sand dunes, although be wary of the eroding sand cliffs. Topped off by the large rock formation that gives the beach it's name. This gives a great place to explore at low tide with two small caves. One can be climbed through from one end to the other, while the larger one is too deep to climb out of. Excellent photo opportunities in the area, especially at sunset.
